Pink Potatoes!

At last week’s trip to the Farmers’ Market potatoes were in great abundance.  All colors but mostly smaller types.  Some of them claimed colored flesh as well as colored skins.  I brought home some red potatoes that were in this category.  When I cut them open they were pale pink with deeper red "veins".  I figured that when cooked they would lose their color and revert back to creamy white.  But they didn’t!  Instead I had pale pink mashed potatoes for dinner last night.  And, if I remember correctly, they also had a purple variety with colored flesh – those might be on my list for next week. 
So, if you are looking for something fun to do for Valentine’s day or maybe just to brighten up a dinner, take a look for these new varieties.  I forgot the specific name of the variety I purchased but your potato farmer will be able to help you and I would bet they’d be clearly marked if you can find them in the grocery store.

    @ No name: That is too bad! I love my 50/1.8 – although this was actually with a 100/2.8 I guess the good news that it wasn\’t a $1000+ lens. ;-)
